New video of England's visit to Auschwitz released with Holocaust Educational Trust
With 2012 holding plenty of memories for the England squad, one in particular will stick longer in the minds of the players present in Poland on Friday 8 June.
Situated in Krakow for EURO 2012, seven members of the Three Lions squad visited the site of the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau with 15 others heading to see Oskar Schindler's factory just outside Krakow.
And the effect of what they saw is something which won’t leave them, as FATV’s video in conjunction with the Holocaust Educational Trust illustrates.
Three Lions goalkeeper Joe Hart was amongst the players to visit Auschwitz and he revealed: "It is the scale of the place that hits you, the numbers that walked through those gates with absolutely no hope of survival.
"When we went to see the place where the bodies were cremated, we were told 90 per cent of those who walked through that door were dead within the hour.
"There were pictures of people who arrived and it described how they died in that way."
Prior to arriving in Poland, the England squad had heard moving stories from Holocaust survivors Zigi Shipper and Ben Helfgott MBE about their time in the Nazi Concentration and Death Camp.
And captain Steven Gerrard was one of those quick to give his thoughts on what he heard along with his team-mates.
He said: "It was very moving and inspirational for us. To come and share their experience with us shows great bravery and character.
"As a footballer, you realise how lucky and privileged you are to lead the lives we are leading today."
Shipper added: "It was so important to speak to the team because they are role models and people listen to them.
"Now they have heard a small part of mine and Ben's experiences, hopefully they'll know more and remember."
All of the footage and material collected from the visit and the talk last year has been used to create an educational resource for secondary school and college students as part of the legacy project with the Holocaust Educational Trust.
